I gathered 7 of my favourite Consistency Quotes for you. And yes, I hope you feel empowered from this post, but, let it be said that it is not motivation that you need,
it’s drive, it’s hunger, it’s passion! Consistency Quotes will only get you so far.
Tony Robbins says – and I’m paraphrasing here.
Motivation is like a warm bath, we all need one from time to time.
But motivation fades, and then you need to find more of it to get going again. And, then that motivation fades, and you need to find it again. Each time you become a little more desensitised to it until eventually, the motivation won’t work any more…
No, it’s the burning desire deep down inside of you that keeps you going with the same level of intensity as you had when you first started.
It’s the unquenchable thirst that comes from a drive to do good, to be better, to give more, to make a difference.
And, if you want it to be a hunger that consumes even the biggest distractions and temptations for simple snacks, you need to attach your drive to a purpose greater than yourself. That means that other people benefit considerably more than you do.
But. You’re only Human
So it’s normal to hit blocks, lose sight of your vision, have doubt, and the occasional feeling of lethargy. In that case, a good solid hit of motivation is all that is needed. So, here you go.
Enjoy. Like and share.
7 Inspirational Quotes On Consistency To Keep You Motivated
1. Consistency Quote by Bruce Lee
Long-term consistency trumps short-term intensity.
Bruce Lee said that he doesn’t fear the man who has practised 1,000 kicks. He fears the man who has practised 1 kick 1,000 times.
2. Consistency Quote by Bruce Springsteen
Getting an audience is hard. Sustaining an audience is hard. It demands a consistency of thought, of purpose, and of action over a long period of time.
As a musician, performer and public speaker myself I can easily relate to this. But it’s equally applicable to those currently building and growing their online influence. It is widely considered that it takes approximately 18 – 24 months of consistent effort to reach 10,000 plus followers, depending on your experience, budget and domain.
3. Consistency Quote by Harvey Mackay
If you are persistent you will get it, if you are consistent you will keep it.
If you were to relate this consistency quote to learning you would stumble across the lesser-known principle of reinforcement. Which honours the laws of entropy beautifully. We’ve all heard the saying “if you don’t use it, you lose it”, it’s the second part of Heb’s Law, a recent discovery in neuroscience. Practically put, we should always revisit the basics. For example, gratitude is a foundation of happiness, but do you still give thanks for what you were at one time very grateful for?
4. Consistency Quote by Robert Collier
Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
Let’s invert this one, a really fun thing to do sometimes. Jim Rohn says that failure is just making the same poor decisions every day for a long time.
5. Consistency Quote by Joubert Botha
If you want to be taken seriously, be consistent.
This is consistency quote is related to trust and integrity. If someone trusts you, then they will believe you, and take you seriously when you say something, or say you’ll do something. And, since we are human and are wont to make mistakes, then the implicit lesson here is to agree to do fewer things and affirms the old mantra of “don’t make promises you can’t keep”.
6. Consistency Quote by Tony Robbins
It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, it’s what we do consistently.
Here we have Tony Robbins rephrasing the concept in a more empowering manner. He’s saying that you don’t have to be perfect, but be aware that what you do, shapes your life. You know, Aristotle said “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit”. But, I like the fact that Tony Robbins alerts us to smaller actions having a lesser impact. Sometimes we can put a lot of pressure on ourselves.
7. Consistency Quote by Lincoln Chafee
Trust is built with consistency.
Our final consistency quote is not related to success and progress as much as it is related to personal integrity and the building of character. The central principle illustrated within this post is applicable to any domain, spiritual, physical, mental and emotional. In fact, Dr. Joe Dispenze, a meditation scientist, says that we become addicted to the emotions that we consistently experience. Therefore we could extrapolate (yes, I used that word in a blog post!) happiness is built with consistency.
Would you say Love is built with consistency?
And, if you’re the type who likes applicable knowledge then use this framework taken from Sam Ovens and apply the principle to whatever level you’re at in order to take your self to the next level.
Thoughts become words
Words become actions
Actions become habits
Habits become character
Your character becomes your destiny
For example, if you want to change your character, keep consistent with your habits that will result in the desired outcome. Cause and effect, right.
Just get back to what it is you were doing yesterday, or just before, or what it is you should be doing, or know you should be doing right now.
